8:13 am
october 1, some of us craving fall to finally get here. not quite as muggy for tampa bay north this morning. so some of you enjoying that. 57 degrees with a northeast wind in tampa. but near the co- all kinds of pesky showers including a storm west of longboat. the rain winding down pinellas. and we you talk trapics, the 8 a.m. update from matthew from the hurricane center. i will have it for you coming i will have it for you coming up i don't clip, i don't plan, but i still save a lot. i just shop for publix brand products, and that's it. no really, that's it. that's how i save at publix.
8:14 am
8:15 am
oh yea, everything is digital now-a-days. this thing never leaves my side. that is why i signed up for publix digital coupons. and i got the paper ones too. so retro... that's how i save at publix. how 'bout you? publix. where shopping is a pleasure. you are watching "good day tampa bay." >> anjuli: in haiti people who live in the tent cities are
8:16 am
will lash haiti with heavy rains, high winds. hundreds of thousands of haitians live in makeshift camps after the 2010 earthquake that struck there. unbelievable. i can't imagine. >> alcides: you have to feel for them what they have dealt with the past decade and now with this hurricane matthew on track to head their way. pretty scary, right, lindsay. >> lindsay: always watching any system in the caribbean but this one is strong, very powerful. yesterday the first category 5 hurricane since 2007. nine slightly weaker system. hurricane hunters, we need them to continue to get out there an explore what is happening right now so we can fine tune the track how it may impact the u.s. if at all down the road next week. and down the road, kind of analyzing the winds from the center of circulation. the strongest i have seen so far is 127 miles per hour at flight level. as it continues to hook around here, we will get all this information on the 11 a.m.
8:17 am
rather showing still winds in some locations, upwards of 40 miles per hour. that is on east of some of the strong winds. what i noticed since yesterday no longer see that defined eye. storm weakening some. pressure has increased 5 millibars. still very low which shows the power of this system at 9:47. what you notice is 155-mile-per-hour winds. if you were not familiar with the safford simpson wind two miles shy of category. northwest at 7 and waiting on to northerly track. that timing when when it lifts north will determine does this pass over jamaica. does it head a little further to the east toward haiti meaning they could emore rain. either way, the whole region will see a lot of rain. the question remains how strong will those hurricane force winds extend from the center. right now only 45 miles from the center so at this pace,
8:18 am
hurricane tuesday morning over mountain use east cuba which will mean weakening. this cone heading out in time over the case five days out, five to seven days out from making landfall. at that. it is larger. the margin of error will not just be going to the center line but could be further east and why this is so big and includes southeast florida. the gfs the rehibl models are showing a slightly westward track and other models like these you see east of jamaica. that will be good for them. they take it further east of the census. so watch the spread as we head into wednesday, thursday. we don't like to see this big margin of error. that why our confidence is low where this may head mid to late week next week. at this point we need to continue to watch things and see how it pans out. at this point for our local impacts, may be good ones, drier air and breezy conditions
8:19 am
